SERVPRO Strives to Preserve Hardwood Flooring with Fast Water Mitigation in the Clifton Area

Innovative Equipment and Expert Technicians Preserve Hardwood Floors after Water Damage in Clifton

When your Clifton home experiences a water loss, flooring often takes the brunt of the harm. Some types of floors, such as the laminates that are popular today might need to be removed and replaced as their construction does not hold up well to water immersion. Other floors like ceramic tile need careful water removal and assessment of subfloor damage if any grout or other joints are cracked or poorly sealed.

The pride of many local homeowners is the original or restored hardwood floors in our community’s historic homes or more modern construction. Water damage to your Clifton floors can be a great worry after a burst pipe or appliance malfunction. Our team of Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration (IICRC)-trained technicians use strategies learned during both coursework and on the job to deliver a successful outcome including a well-preserved floor.

Speed of response is essential when water flows over a hardwood floor. The joints between each plank allow water to migrate under the decorative and durable top layer. As the water moves down between the tongue and groove joints of the planks, additional layers of subflooring become involved as well. SERVPRO crew members understand the tendency of water to soak deeply into the different fixtures and structures of a hardwood floor set-up. We employ several methods to pull out the majority of the liquid water before finishing the job with applied structural drying (ASD) techniques.

Water deeper than two inches is pumped out using submersible units. Our crews move to powerful wanded extractors as the water level decreases. SERVPRO has a wide range of equipment on each service vehicle aligned with fast water removal and drying, stocked for every job to avoid delays.

Because hardwood floors need the supporting sub-floor dried out completely SERVPRO uses floor mats sealed to the floor to provide a suctioning action designed to pull moisture from several levels. Our workers use moisture meters and infrared scanners to locate the lingering wetness and then target those areas with negative air pressure technology. The system extracts moisture under the mats via hoses that suck water into containers for disposal.

SERVPRO of Clifton invests in training and equipment to ensure our team responds effectively to your water damage issues. Call us at (973) 928-3705 to schedule an assessment and rapid water damage remediation.
